Shockwave ICE 2 - Integrated Crew Environment - is designed to carry the operator plus instruments and controls in suspension. Shockwave ICE are suspended cockpits designed to provide adjustable, multi-axis shock mitigation for vessel crews, equipment and electronics. Mounting the controls in suspension enhances vessel control and reduces operator fatigue. Integrating electronics into the suspension package also protects sensitive equipment from shock damage and makes instruments easier to read.
The combined Shockwave ICE system is designed to not bottom out in severe impacts while retaining comfortable cushioning in lighter sea conditions. The adjustable progressive spring rate FOX H2O FLOAT shock absorber has 300mm (12”) travel which provides a high level of shock mitigation and vibration attenuation. The Low Stiction Linear Suspension includes internal bump and topping protection. If required the ICE3 can also carry climate controls, weather protection, sensors, antennas and self-righting gear.
